I'm back!

After almost six months of absence, this post is almost like a visit to the attic, or a peek at old pictures of times long gone. Alienation, recognition, curiosity, nostalgia,..are a few of the nouns that come to mind: building blocks for a customized sentence yearning to be formed in your head. Whatever the sentence, whatever its syntax, its meaning will undoubtedly be true.

Here I am, on my 26th birthday, fulfilled with the very human and therefore somewhat cute belief that this day marks the beginning of a new phase in life. Although in reality this day is no different than yesterday or tomorrow, I cling to this institutionalised momentum to convince myself of its truthfulness. And while these words and thoughts are almost martially forced onto my current state of mind, I feel their power gradually building up inside me. They march through my veins, fill me with energy. Believing = wanting to believe. Aaaah, the good old battle between reality and idealism. It most definitely is one of my life's themes.

On a sidenote: I've been active as a blogger in Dutch though: DORST.

I'll be back.
